Steve Goldsmith: Hello, this is Steve Goldsmith, Professor of Urban Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School. I was Deputy Mayor of New York for Mike Bloomberg and Mayor of the City of Indianapolis. At Harvard I direct the Innovations in American Government Awards program and the Data-Smart City Solutions program. And today I’m here to tell you about our new podcast called Data-Smart City Pod. Through the research, writing, and communities of practice that we’re doing at Harvard’s Kennedy School, we act as a central resource for ideas that connect innovation, data, and government. And in this podcast I’ll bring on top innovators, and leading industry, academic, and government officials to dive deeper into these topics, and help listeners discover how to become data smart.
